    Google My Business API gets Added Features with V3.1 Update

    Google My Business recently upgraded their API with even more new features.

    The Top Contributors got a preview last week, but I was unable to take notes.
    And who knows more about the API than Professor Maps - so I'll share his post about it.

    Google My Business API Gets Updated to V3.1 | Understanding Google My Business & Local Search

    Google has just released the Google MyBusiness API V3.1 . The update brings real time push notification for the ever changing listing updates AND when a new review is written for a location.

    These real time updates with push capabilities will allow businesses monitoring their listing via a dashboard to be actively notified of status changes, data updates and incoming reviews without having to make a call to Google for that information. It should allow businesses to respond more quickly to any of these changes.

    Re: Google My Business API gets Added Features with V3.1 Update

    I tried to search for "api" but the forum like many others don't like 3 char search terms.

    So I will ask here - what tools are you using that make use of the Google API? I want to start approaching multi-location clients and to make it work I think the API will be critical going forward. However I am not sure if there are any companies with off the shelf tools that will work in Australia?

    Whitespark? Moz Local I am sure will not. Do I have to hire a developer for some custom coding?

    It would be great to know who are the industry leaders in developing software for agencies which utilises the GMB API so I can follow up for my geo-local requirements.

    Hi Adam,

    Here are some API threads Google found.

    I'll let those in the know answer your specific Qs. But Sundays are quiet, so it might be tomorrow.
